Myra Cason, 63, a retired schoolteacher was found shot to death in her car on Friday.  She was parked in a furniture store parking lot in the Glen Burnie area of Maryland.  She had several gunshot wounds to her chest.

In America, we don’t blame lax gun laws.  We blame her for not carrying a gun to protect herself.

On Sunday morning, a man was retrieving his gun from the trunk of his car at a McDonald’s in Jackson, TN, when he accidentally pulled the trigger.  The bullet passed through a man’s shoulder and a woman’s arm.  The injuries are not life threatening.

That idiot has a legal right to own guns and retrieve them from his trunk.  But wait!  There’s more stupid in this story!  – – – No charges have been filed!  Can you believe that?

Yeah, we can…it happened in Tennessee.

Kids go to McDonald’s, right?

There was a shooting Saturday morning at the Crossing Place Apartments, a student-filled apartment complex just two blocks from the Michigan State University campus.  This is the second shooting in the past two months at MSU.  In the shooting last month, 20-year-old Adrian House was shot dead.  There are no additional details on this latest shooting.

With such lax gun laws, school shootings are now common in the United States.

While driving her 13-year-old son, Beau, to soccer practice on Thursday, Julie Powers Schenecker, 50, of New Tampa, FL, shot him twice in the head for talking back to her.  She then drove home and shot her 16-year-old daughter, Calyx, in the back of the head while her daughter did her homework.

In a nation that claims you need a gun to protect yourself, 13 and 16-year-olds are not allowed that option.
